Storyline

Orphaned at a very young age and adopted by his uncle, a Poojari, and aunt, Premvati, Devdhar lives a poor lifestyle with them and their daughter, Radha. Poojari works for Bade Thakur and his family and prepares astrological charts and organizes prayers, and asks him for financial assistance so that Devdhar can go to Bombay and study, which is approved. Years later Devdhar has matured, returns home so that Radha could get married. He meets with and falls in love with Bade Thakur's paternal niece, Manorama, his childhood friend. She likes him too, but is very naive about love and intimacy. Radha gets married to a much older man and moves out, while Manorama's marriage is arranged with Kunwar Narendra Pratap Singh. The wedding takes place with great pomp and ceremony, and a heartbroken Devdhar leaves the village to return to Bombay. A few months later he meets with Radha, who is now pregnant, and also decides to visit his uncle and aunt. This is where he will get the shock of his life ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Great Characters from Raj Kapoor
29 June 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Manorama (Padmini Kolhapuri) is one of the best written characters of Hindi cinema. Raj Kapoor builds her character so beautifully that the viewer's heart breaks when disaster and grief befalls her. Not only her, all the other characters are written with intent and conviction. That is probably the reason why some big names of the Hindi film industry play those roles which hardly afford any screen time - the likes of Tanuja, Bindu and Nanda. Each character is well defined and have a role to play in the story.

The last half an hour of the films goes a bit too much into delivering social messages. In fact, the film editorializes throughout but that passes through because the character of Devdhar (Rishi Kapoor) is intended to be that of a forward thinking reformer. Staying on Rishi Kapoor, he is a calm and composed actor. He knows that he is second fiddle to Padmini Kolhapuri in this film but that does not stop him from being the natural actor that he is. As for Padmini Kolhapuri, this is easily the role of her lifetime.

Devdhar's love for Manorama is almost Sufi. The title track (Main Hoon Prem Rogi) is drenched in Sufi ethos. It stays throughout the film. My favorite song, however, is 'Ye Galiyaan Ye Chaubara' rendered flawlessly by Lata Mangeshkar.

Prem Rog is basically a social film, in keeping with the traditions of R.K Films. But it is the characterization of Manorama that makes it an important film to have come out of that production house.
